    Invent a silent coffee grinder. God I hate that sound. It feels like a machete going through my head every time my wife turns that thing on.

    i don't know what kind of grinder you use, but if it's a standard $15 chopper jobbie from the local store, you might consider instead a "burr grinder" instead. first, it grinds instead of chops. as a result, you get an order of magnitude better brew. second, it doesnt' make that nasty high-pitched whirring noise. it DOES make plenty of noise, but it might be more to your liking.

    starbucks sells a unit that goes on sale periodically for about $90-$100. they re-label a reputable (italian?) manufacturer's device.

    just a suggestion. those whirry choppers don't do your beans justice.

    You could make it about the size of a bread maker or rice cooker, insulated with sound deadening foam. Maybe even white noise??

    Sell it to Sharper Image (royalties+) and be sure to stop by the Ferrari Dealer on the way home!

    If you have central vac in your garage this is close. Although not great suction.

    I disagree. My house has this, with the hookup in every room, and the suction is pretty good. :)

    I hate the noise from those grinders. The coffee shop I go to has a few large grinders, they will get all of them going with these big giant bags of coffee beans in them and they just go on forever. Between that and the blenders it's like being on a construction site.

    I don't drink the stuff myself. I just have to listen to it go through the grinder. I have no idea what kind she has but it is just loud.

    Sounds like our kitchen. I don't know how people can do that all day long.
